‘Tis the season to Craft for Cats! Our virtual craftalong is back with an exciting Christmas edition.
Join on Saturday 27 November and learn how to make your own needle felted 3D cat bauble to hang on your tree or even gift to someone special!
Suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced crafters, you’ll receive a materials kit containing everything you need to create a fab festive decoration.
Led by felting expert Steffi Stern from The Makerss, you can join in with the live craftalong on Facebook from 10am - 12pm, or catch up later by watching the video.
There are four colour variations to choose from so your bauble can be made to look just like your cat, or it could be the purrfect present for a cat lover in your life.
The cost to take part includes the craft materials kit delivered to your door, access to the craftalong, as well as £10 to support our work to help cats and kittens in need.
It could pay for bedding to help keep an unwanted or abandoned cat warm and cosy through the winter months, or flea and worm a cat brought into the charity’s care.
About the craft
This fun project is suitable for beginners aged 10+ (under adult supervision). You’ll learn how to needle felt with wool using a felting needle and fast felting wool batts. You will be able to make one 3D cat decoration and there are four colour variations to choose from:
Your craft kit has been carefully designed by The Makerss team and contains everything you need to make your cat bauble, as well as step-by-step instructions. It comes packed in a sturdy Kraft box and will be posted through your letterbox. You can find out more about the materials in the kit here.
On sign up, you will be invited to join our private Craft for Cats Facebook group. Please note, if you wish to watch the craftalong live you need to have access to a Facebook account, but you will also be sent a recording to watch later on YouTube.
